Matt and Bibi use math to escape from a pharaoh's tomb!

When the Zills family is summoned to Egypt to help find the hidden burial site of an ancient pharaoh, Matt and Bibi are locked into an adventure they did not expect.

Luckily, the two know their stuff when it comes to geometric solids.

My five year old loves this book. It's a nice introduction to solid shapes and exploits the fact that kids seem to find mummies fascinating to make it appealing to children. It maintains a suspense level to keep kids engaged while thinking about and working out clues which are to do with the faces of solid figures.
